WHAT GOT DONE IN 2013 from this list I shared with you all back {HERE}. Yay some things got done some others lol did not.  But then I did have some things that where no where on the list.  That seem to come together this year.  And you just have to laugh happily when that happens.  Life will throw you curve balls.  You don’t have to catch every one.  Just don’t let it hit you. Hee hee.


 2014 GOALS

  • Finish reupholstering 2 chairs for sun-room  chair set sunroom
  • Make a tufted headboard for my bedroom
  • Finish the headboard bench for my closet II  now sitting in Craft room {can you see it in this mess}craft room mess
  • Relaunch Ashes Restored {my furniture business}Ashes Restored
  • Get my own car
  • Get out of A (automatic) on my Camera especially since I have 2
  • Go to Haven {a blogging conference}
  • Turn craft room into half closet for my honey

Well folks I think that is a pretty good list to work with.  Don’t you think?? Maybe probably not everything will get done as there are things that pop in life.  But it’s good to have some goals to work towards.

How bout you have you set any goals for this year?  Write them down and then put them someplace where you are sure to find them around this time next year.  Maybe you could put them in with your Christmas decor that’s sure to come back out next December.  It will let you see in writing what was important to you now.

Happy New Year to all…
